Didn't go to many this year, but No Fun Acid stands out a long way ahead of any of the others that I saw.

Honorable mention also goes to Bardo Pond and Dead C.

Disappointment of the year: missing Gate due to a heavy cold.

I only attended a handful of gigs this year:

Sonic Youth (my first time and the highlight of 2010)
Mono
Kylesa
X-TG
Ulver

Still bummed for missing Shellac and The Fall, though.
